      After the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center in 2001, I remember telling my father I almost felt the best response would be to turn the entire Middle East into radioactive glass. He said, “Then we wouldn’t be any better than the terrorists.” Revenge is a hard emotion to control, and the Iraq war shows how well that can go….!.
